Excerpt: "In Turkish, you would have to include in the verb how you acquired this information. For example, if you saw the chubby fellow on the wall with your own eyes, you'd use one form of the verb, but if you had simply read or heard about it, you'd use a different form."

"Juggling involves problem solving, posture, hand and arm movement as well as balance, so if you learn juggling, you can learn anything. That’s my guarantee. Add that 'learning to learn' idea to the fact that aerobic activity can increase your learning ability (another study), and you’re on your way to being a super learner."

"The analogy goes something like this: smart people fail because they forget they are in Rome. In order to succeed, they have to come to grips with where they’re at. The “Romans” in this analogy are all the many “common” people that surround the smart people."

"Smart people often struggle to “succeed” in the normal sense, because they’re players in a game they were never truly designed to play. They will often be out of place, and it’s no wonder that smart people fail. To succeed, you must recognize the pervasive truth in the phrase, “When in Rome, do as the Romans do.” In mainstream life, you have to (at least initially) do mainstream things in order to get ahead, to succeed. You have to play the game. But it’s much more optimistic than that: you’re smarter than they are. You can beat them. You just have to learn the rules and feel the ropes. After that, they don’t even stand a chance. Then, after you’ve done all that, once you’ve succeeded, at least in the arenas of security, personal finances and a few others, you can get back to your own thing."
